Critical darling “Rectify” will end its run on SundanceTV after its fourth season airs this fall.
“Rectify” was the first original series for the cable network, which is part of the AMC Network’s portfolio, and was created, written and directed by Oscar winner Ray McKinnon. The slow-paced, modest-performing drama centers on Daniel Holden (Aidan Young) as he tries to re-acclimate to his life in a small Georgia town after serving 19 years on death row.
“‘Rectify’ is in many ways an existential story that was allowed to come to life during an existential era in serial storytelling,” said McKinnon in a statement. “It was a case of perfect timing with the perfect partners. I have always felt that ‘Rectify’ could end at any time or just as easily continue. Well, not easily. But there is no perfect ‘end’ for this story nor for these characters. They will continue to live on. We just won’t document them any longer. And the timing of this ‘non-end’ end feels exactly right.”
Production on its final season will begin in April.
